The doctors said if I wasn't in such good physical condition I would have most likely died
In May of 2014, I was in the best shape of my life. I ran the soldier field 10 mile race in 1:05:24 (6:32 pace) and I'm 6'5". I had a resting heart rate of 52bpm. Why this is important is because in June of 2014, I crashed on my motocross bike practicing for a race. After, I was airlifted to the hospital and the dust settled. I had broken my back, four ribs, my right collarbone (again) separated my spinal column from my hip and my brain was bleeding. Fortunately the bleeding stopped quickly and I only lost memory and vision for a couple weeks. I also had multiple transfusions of blood during my six hour surgery. The doctors said if I wasn't in such good physical condition I would have most likely died.
I don't have to be your inspiration, but I can show you that whatever you try to do is possible
I spent the next three months at RIC in Chicago for rehabilitation. And months after in outpatient. I'm now classified as an l1 incomplete. I enjoy sled hockey and wheelchair football but crossfit freedom is where it's at. They have taken my wife Jessica and I in like family. Even though my legs will never work again there are so many things that I can do that no able bodied person will ever come close to. I don't have to be your inspiration, but I can show you that whatever you try to do is possible!
